Christian McCaffrey

Unfortunately in recent years, Christian McCaffrey has been a frequent addition to the Carolina Panthers' injury report. This week is no different. McCaffrey is back on the report ahead of Week 3. 

The veteran running back is dealing with "lingering stiffness" and the Panthers are adding him to the injury report out of caution. The good news is he is still expected to play this weekend. 

The Panthers play the Saints of New Orleans on Sunday. 

"#Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey was added to the injury report on Thursday, but the team says he's still expected to play on Sunday. He's dealing with some lingering stiffness," said Ian Rapoport. 

Christian McCaffrey is reportedly dealing with some ankle stiffness. However, it's not expected to keep him out of Sunday's game. 

"Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey has been added to the injury report due to an ankle injury that limited him in practice today," said Field Yates.

Hopefully McCaffrey can play on Sunday. The Panthers sure do need him to get back on track. 

Carolina takes on New Orleans in Week 3 this Sunday.
